Arrangements for Friday 15th November
Re: St Edmund’s Day – Friday 15th November 2019
This half-term has seen a continuation of the great start to the year we had last half-term. I hope you had a chance to read the newsletter and perhaps spotted the school in the press as a result of our continued outstanding academic achievement.
We will be celebrating the Feast of St Edmund’s on Friday 15th November 2019 and in the same format as last year we will be combining our celebrations with PSHE day.
On the 15th November, Years 7, 8 and 10 will attend a special Mass at St John’s Cathedral in the morning following registration and will return to school in time for break. For the duration of the day students will be with their tutor group undertaking a variety of PSHE activities. They will leave from the school at the normal time (Years 7, 8 and 10).
Years 9 and 11 will remain in school for the morning with their year groups then they will have their own special Mass at St John’s Cathedral starting at 2pm. Students (Years 9 and 11) may then either be collected from the Cathedral at 3pm or make their own way home as normal.
You are welcome to join us for either of the Mass services which will start at 9.15am and again at 2pm. This will be a delightful spiritual celebration of the ethos of St Edmund’s Catholic School.
I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you that the school is closed on Friday 22nd November 2019 due to staff training and will re-open on Monday 25th November 2019 at 8.25am for all students. The focus for all our training days will be on improving teaching and learning of all staff at St Edmund’s.May I thank you for the continued support you give your child and St Edmund’s.
